the worst : mr barbs

the really worst : AoN being an auto success, when you can cast actual dispel magic at a naked NPC (nevermind a player) 20 times and fail to dispel anything

the also worst : reflex changes

the best : custom eq

best: getting rid of crs.

worst:
MR barbs in their entirety.
Dwarves getting skinning bonuses(?), because why not make a support class roll a crappy race in addition to already rolling a crappy class.
Areas built with 5x more static NPCs and random spawning NPCs than they should.
Bounty NPCs.
Loyalty Token Revive + Loyalty token Retrieve.
Happy Hour.
Overloading saves on NPCs.
Neutering bash without providing an alternative for securing PvP kills.
Buffing warlocks repeatedly while nerfing necros repeatedly, at the same time a staffer was playing a light-aura warlock.
Re-working enchant by removing the ability to add saves to armor and stacking saves on gear, forcing the playerbase to rely entirely on builders to get more than 1 half decent save.

No code changes and no expectation for them.

I'd donate real dollars for some code updates, if that's what it took. Adding a champion level skill to swashbucklers was cool. I'd like to see that trend continue with other suffering classes.

***Scouts should get marksmanship at master and masterwork at champion ***

worst: the massacre on tribunals, reflex dependency & subsequently giving 1 class immunity to any reflex-based spell, ki-straps
A. The -only- class that needs evasion, the way it is now, is bards.
B. Making a weapon subtype specifically for 1 cabal and adding a boatload of options with various damage types doesn't make sense. Other cabals with weapon-based skills do not have such an array of options and have skillsets that aren't even comparable in terms of strength/utility.

the best: MR barbs for making nerds lose their minds

Worst change was easily introducing bounty NPCs.

Best change was nerfing them significantly.

Best:The addition of new abilities/gear/areas.

Worst:The nerfing/removal of abilities/gear/areas.

Plus it seems like someone nerfed Dulrik. Where is that guy? Lol
